there at that time. it is budget season in san francisco. the city operates now on a two-year budget and so that means that we are developing the budget for fiscal year 13-14, as well as 14-15. now the good news in the city and really at the state actually, state-level is that we're in much better shape financially than we were a few, short years ago during the financial meltdown, but we're still not out of woods yet. at this time the city does have a deficit, i believe it's been $129 million, but don't quote me on that. it's more than $100 million. and for this reason, the mayor has given direction to all of the different department heads that when we submit our budget, we need to include some budget reductions, approximately 1.5% per year. and so our office is cooperating, of course, with that citywide effort. during the budget season, our office also participates in capital planning for the really big projects, like new buildings or ada transition plan work for barrier-removal. and a little bit later in the meeting today, i have asked our deputy director for architectural access, john pa

at success in other school districts in the bay area than they do in the san francisco school district. we have to change that. this appropriation is about recognizing that while money is not the only answer, money is part of the answer. this is about closing the achievement gap which is one of the single most important challenges that we are facing as a city. that is why this vote is so important. and so i would once again - and i have a lot of respect for my colleagues and i understand the reasoning that has been reticulated - but the reason why i am against, by releasing money that the district is entitled to, we are not doing anything -- it would be a mistake for san francisco not to make this choice now. for everyday, every month that we delay making that additional expenditure the achievement gap with some students is going to grow wider and will become more expensive to close it. i hope that we support this item. and again i want to thank supervisor kim and the other cosponsors. and i look forward to working with our new colleagues. >> president: supervisor kim. >> supervisor kim:
